Time to complete your 2020 Census is running out!

Census - english

The census is a simple count of everyone in the United States, regardless of age, imigration status, or any other factor. It is used to determine the distribution of federal dollars and political representation for New Mexico over the next 10 years. 

A census undercount means cuts for Title I schools and school food programs, cuts for firefighters and first responders, less funding for improving roads, and reduced access to health care for the next 10 years. It also impacts our political representation. It is critical that all of our voices are heard. 

The census is important. Your responses are secure. Time is running out. Count everyone in your household today at
